After receiving a citation that I felt could potentially damage my future, I was recommended Stephen as a lawyer. At the time, I was so distraught that I didn’t expect much to come of it, but I felt it was better to try, than to throw up the white flag.
Steve was great. He kept me informed through the whole process via email, phone, and even text when I wasn’t available. He was always realistic with me and never gave me false hopes, which I was extraordinarily impressed with.
To make a long case short, my charges were dropped as a result of Steve’s work. I felt like he always kept me at the top of his priority list and couldn’t be happier with the results.
I would recommend Stephen Benedetto to anyone in need of a criminal attorney. He exceeded all of my expectations and hopes, and I couldn’t be more grateful.

I felt the need to give Steve Benedetto this review because he was my initial contact with the firm. It must be said... I was an emotional wreck and honestly I feared he would be like every other attorney I had explained my situation to and been turned away. Without going into detail I can only assume that 'those other' lawyers simply were NOT good enough to take on a medical facility and their fancy pants repusentation.
Steve not only listened to me but actually calmed me down to where I could speak to him without hyperventalating. He promised me his partner wold be in touch with me to discuss my case. I can admit, I didn't want him to hang up as soo many times before I had been promised call backs and they never came through.
Literally within 2 hours I was on a confrence call with Steve & John. I didn't feel like I was talking to attorneys at all. I'm not at all a trustworthy person, I always EXPECT to be let down & I DO NOT give unmerited compliments. Had Steve not been so easy to talk to when I made inital contact, I would never have been so lucky to have his partner John fighting for what is RIGHT!
My case was not at all "The Lottery"
They took my case because what happened was wrong. Soley to prevent it from happenening to another family .... Who does that? THESE GUYS, THATS WHO!
Thanks Steve! For listening to me cry, for calming me down, for being true to doing the right thing && for putting me in touch with my B~A lawyer John! Who is literally (excuse my verbaige) kicking the bad guys in the taco as we speak! Sorry, I had to say it =]

Posted by John Adam, a Election Campaign client,
One of my opponents in the 2010 primary election challenged the signatures on my nominating petition and my eligibility to run in a partisan race. If I were to have lost this case, my name would not have appeared on the ballot! Basically, my campaign came to a complete halt.
I was surprised at how quickly Stephen did the research and put together a strategy. Within a day, he gave me his assessment and I felt confident that we would win. At a time when I was overwhelmed with the demands of the campaign, I felt like I had a powerful ally on my side. Since the ballots were to be printed in less than a week or so, Stephen successfully got the court to hear the case within a few days. There are always risks in court, but I felt confident and Stephen easily won this case...the complaint was completely dismissed and I was able to immediately resume my campaign. I would not hesitate to hire Stephen again and I most strongly recommend him.
